  1. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    Forbes is keen to point out (maybe a little to keen ) how Young Sheldon is different to The Big Bang Theory: https://www.forbes.com/sites/merrillbarr/2017/09/19/young-sheldon-review-the-big-bang-theory-it-is-not/#7d26a0c57fa6 USA Today - 'Young Sheldon' kids around with 'Big Bang' boy genius: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2017/09/19/young-sheldon-big-bang-theory-jim-parsons-iain-armitage-cbs/670058001/

  3. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    AdWeek says CBS is taking a big gamble with Young Sheldon, which deviates from the network's usual shows, but also ranks it as CBS's most promising new show: http://www.adweek.com/tv-video/cbs-stays-doggedly-on-brand-with-its-new-fall-shows-aside-from-a-big-gamble-on-young-sheldon/
  4. Young Sheldon Discussion Thread

    That does sound disturbing on the face of it, but might not be as bad as the problem she aimed to highlight. The work may have been a response to the circa 1980s wave where therapists and self-help gurus became convinced vast numbers of people were repressing traumatic incidents which their therapeutic help could bring to the fore. Instead, it seemed that otherwise unharmed people were convinced they had traumatic memories that did not exist until they were led in that direction. Incidents that may not have occurred then led to criminal investigations. According to Wikipedia, her research could not for obvious reasons involve making people believe they were victims of serious crimes, so instead she tested whether it was possible to convince people they had been left at malls just with the power of suggestion and leading questions. People would start to imagine what that might have looked like through questioning and apparently 25% of the people came to believe it had actually happened. Some people still objected on ethical grounds, understandably. But it seems given the seriousness of the wave of repressed memories being recovered, many of which led to court cases for serious crimes, maybe the reseach was a lesser evil? IIRC, the era of recovered memories was covered in a chapter of the book "Mistakes Were Made, but Not By Me", which covered a lot of the mental fallacies humans exhibit including problems with memory.

  10. Young Sheldon Fan Site

    I'm pleased to unveil a new fan site for Young Sheldon to provide news and information on the show: https://young-sheldon.com/ Although there will likely be some updates on Young Sheldon on the main site here, we won't be providing the more day-to-day coverage on the show. So I thought it best to create a new site where there can be full coverage of the show with its own episode guide, quotes database, etc. The site is obviously pretty bare at the moment, but as the show starts up the site should grow to have the same sort of content found on the main site here: quotes, character profiles, polls, articles, etc. There won't be a separate forum for the site, so this board will still serve as a place to talk about Young Sheldon. Hopefully as people find the new site, they might also join this forum to discuss the show.
